Auspicious day! I was so happy to find that the day I’d booked off work also happened to be the day that Partick’s new bagel purveyor opened. I already had plans to be in Glasgow on the 28th of July, but I’d been looking forward to some fresh bagels for so long that I decided to come in hours before I was originally meant to and travel to the West End before I had to be in Central.
The journey and lingering threat of rain was worth it. For opening, Brawsome Bagels was punting free bagels with every drink purchased. I treated myself to a flat white and a rhubarb flavoured soft drink and was rewarded with an everything bagel!
From what I overheard, Brawsome won’t be offering filled bagels until Saturday (I’ll be back) but I was more than happy to indulge in some bread. Over text, my partner seemed a little perplexed because I was just chilling in Mansfield Park with a dry bagel, but I was far from disappointed.
Since it was my first visit, I opted for the everything bagel. Makes sense. It looked gorgeous and was such a great shape – so much surface area for fillings. The bread wasn’t gummy or dry, it was so light and tasty! I loved the loud sesame flavours on the top, one of my favourites.
The staff were all so friendly. Murmurings told me that they were having a busy and successful first day. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, and I was so thrilled to be there!
I only realised after I left that they were selling fresh, homemade, fruity iced tea and kicked myself for not trying some. But my coffee was so tasty, so I can’t say I feel like a loser here.
Needless to say, I will absolutely be back again soon to explore the selection of fillings they’ll be offering, and I’ll definitely be picking up a cup of their iced tea.

I just finished reading A Girl is a Half-Formed thing! I really enjoyed it – it was a difficult read in a lot of different ways, but is a timeless classic in the making, and an essential read. Buying a copy through this link is affiliated to me.
